A look back........2.....

This quilt has to be my favorite that I finished in 2010.  It is one of my most pinned photos on Pinterest.  Here is a post with another view of it too.  It actually doesn't have its binding on it in this photo and I couldn't find any photo of it with binding.  I used the same bright periwinkle blue that is the first border for the binding.




This is a small quilt also finished in 2010 with a hanging sleeve so it can be used as a wallhanging.  I just love it and I named it Celebration.  Here is a link to the post where it was finished.  That post has a link to this one and the other quilt with similar blocks and how different they came out.





Why the look back instead of what I did yesterday?  I am cleaning the basement for the art quilters Monday so I'll have a couple days of not accomplishing much except getting rid of the dust bunnies and finding the tops of all of the tables.  They have been buried pretty deep this month.

I wanted to get a better photo of the shaggy orange coneflower but we have had very little rain and the flowers are starting to dry up.




This was a newer bloom and I had to get down under it and shoot up to get a good photo.

I for one would count getting rid of dust bunnies and finding table tops as a huge accomplishment!

I have always loved this trip around the world quilt and was SO happy to see it in person when we visited a few years ago. The colors absolutely radiate joy.

The yellow wall makes the quilt even more fun. I can see why you love the quilt!

I can see why you like these quilts so much, they're really pretty. I like your coneflower and have never seen that variation.

The way you combined the fabrics in Celebrations is masterful. Not many people would have the courage to use that large wild print for the sashing and borders.

I love that Celebrations quilt - the sashing fabric makes me think of fireworks going off in a celebration. I will be referring back to the coneflower shots a bit as I pull the fabrics for my next flower. Thank you!

They are beautiful! Please don't remind me about my basement... One of my teenage sons seems to think it is OK to just drop everything on the floor, on the pathway to my studio... :-)
